    RE: Top Flite AT6 ARF

    hey everyone!!! I see a few familiar screen names in here.
    whats up Sonny!!!!

    well I'm still working on my TF 310 but i did pick one of these TF AT6 from tower with a Magnum FS91 4 stroke. I have pretty much finished the build and I can agree with everyone on here about the retracts that are included with this. Plan on getting the Robarts with the robostruts in the near future. I want to change up somethings to this beside the retracts but don't know what???I do love to modify considering i do it to my cars..RC cars and aircraft.
    I am also a native to the MD area. I fly outta the Walt Good Model airfield in Germantown.

    RE: Top Flite AT6 ARF

    What up badazzgti03,
    You will love flying this bird. One mod you will need on tthis bird is a set of metal gear box that are made by TomTreese for this bird. If you read back in this thread, you will see people having big problem with the gear ripping out on landing, even if you do a smooth landing. Send him a pm and see if he have some in-stock. This plane do love the four stroke and with the sound, people will stop flying just to watch!!! I also went with the Robarts gear and the metal gear boxs from Tom and have over 80 landing on my AT-6.
    If you need any help, just post!!!

    RE: Top Flite AT6 ARF

    I have 12 planes and over 4500 flights and have never needed or used an onboard glow.

    One problem I've seen with them is when you are are slowing down to land the glow kicks in and the idle speed picks up???? Not a good thing on a warbird without flaps!

    I have a Sullivan remote glow on all my Warbirds and most 4-strokes under a cowl.

    Here is my setup of the on-board glow on the Texan. The third picture show you the backside of the unit. You will have to drill a hole through the firewall for the glow plug hookup. I love the setup and for me it give me a better low end on the OS 91. Now mines is run off the throttle channel. I hope this help my friend!!

    Hey Guys;
    Back in the mid 80's I flew out of a small airport right outside of Laurel, Md. I forgot the name of the road that went right by the airport, but there was a sign that read, watch out for low flying airplane on the road. Do Laurel still have the horse track??

    Sonny,

    That airport that you're referring to might be Tipton or Freeway. BTW, I have had good luck with my AT-6 without a glow driver (OS91FSII). It just turned 2yrs old this month with over 150 flights. May our planes last a very long time!!!

    All you AT-6 & Warbird pilots from Maryland and Virginia. My club Colonial Virginia Aeromodelers will be hosting Warbirds Over Williamsburg, WOW-IV, on June 2, 2012.
    You can see our flyer on our website. http://cvarc.homestead.com/Index.html

    It would be great to have several AT-6"s in a formation.

    Happy Easter

    Hey everyone bad news for me....lost my AT-6 on Sunday. It was a little too breezy out but took her up any way....big gust of wind took it on take off and caused it to tip stall about 30ft in the air....totaled if anyone wants any spare parts i have a few that are still good. I have canopy w/ cockpit items and retracts actually survived I also have the metal retract cases too....PM me if anyone is interested......Already ordered TF P-51D mustang 60 and will be getting that tomorrow

    RE: Top Flite AT6 ARF

    I am sorry to hear your loss. Yes, it was too windy last Sunday. I made three flights on my AT-6. The final landing was one of my worse because of the wind gust. Perfect approach then suddenly it lurches up or down because of the wind. Well, no better way to improve our flying skills..
    That 60 size P-51 is a fun plane too. Just tends to nose over especially on thick grass compared to the AT-6, which likes to bounce.


    Tom, that event sounds exciting. I will try to encourage other flyers from our field to storm your field!

    Sorry to hear about your AT-6!![] As for the Top Flite P-51D ARF, you are going to love it. I have one with a OS 1.20FS in the nose and she is a joy to fly. There is a build thread on the forum about the Top Flite P-51D ARF.
    If I can help you on the Top Flite build, please let me know!!
    Again, sorry for your loss.

    ton2di,
    The next time you are out flying the AT-6 in the wind, leave the flaps up. You will land alittle hot, but, the wind gust will not be that bad. My club field runway is East-West and we always have crosswind to put up with al the time. The bad landing come for me when there is no wind and they are some bad landing!!!

    RE: Top Flite AT6 ARF

    This may or may not be news to all of you, but it looks like they dropped the price on the AT-6. I remember it at $319; now it is at $269. Super Saver discount and free shipping brought it to $230.

    I don't know if this means it is going out of program or not. I bought one and will start this Winter.

    Sonny,

    THanks for the tip regarding the flaps. I am used to dropping it when it's time to land, hence the unstable approach near the ground.

    Lifer,

    Thank you also for the tip regarding the price of the AT-6.

    Jon,

    Pass by the field when you have assembled your P-51. I also had an OS 120 on mine like Sonny, but eventually moved up to an OS 200 to spin a 4 blade 15.5x12 or a 16x14 apc. Very Fast. Sold it to another club member to wanted fast planes.
